520    For millennia, fresh olive oil has been one of life's 
       necessities, not just as food but also as medicine, a 
       beauty aid, and a vital element of religious ritual. 
       Today's researchers are continuing to confirm the 
       remarkable, life giving properties of true extra-virgin, 
       and "extra-virgin Italian" has become the highest standard
       of quality.  But what if this symbol of purity has become 
       deeply corrupt? Starting with an explosive article in The 
       New Yorker, the author has become the world's expert on 
       olive oil and olive oil fraud, a story of globalization, 
       deception, and crime in the food industry from ancient 
       times to the present, and a powerful indictment of today's
       lax protections against fake and even toxic food products 
       in the United States. It is also an  account of the 
       artisanal producers, chemical analysts, chefs, and food 
       activists who are defending the extraordinary oils that 
       truly deserve the name "extra-virgin."
